Default Performance stuff

I am looking at www.pfyc.com and I noticed a lot of stuff for the Grand Prix, that I thought I could use in my engine.

There are quite a few things that caught my eye, and I want to know if these would work with my car.... Series II - 1995


K&N Cone filter:

With install kit:

Taylor Wires:

With MSD Coils

With NGK IX plugs

And finally


Throttle Position Sensor Enhancer

Will this really be effective?

Put the brakes on. The GP is a W body. The Boneville is an H body. Different underhood dimensions. It all depends on WHERE you want that cone. My ADTR for instance, wouldn't fit a GP. It'* too long. I have that cone tucked right behind the headlight where it should be. A GP intake wouldn't reach that far.

Otherwise, a bunch of yes'* and an I dunno. That TPS enhancer has been around awhile, but I haven't seen any good data to back it up. Sounds like snake oil to me, just like th IAT resistor, but the only way to find out is to take one for the team!

As Will has stated, most W body parts will work on a H body. But, as in this case the K&N intake will be way too short to actually make a benifit as it will suck in hot engine air before it would cold outside air. Also their MSD coils are even more expensive than mine are & mine are more expensive than Jeg'* & Summit'* are! $149.99 ! as compared to mine at $49.99!

The only thing the throttle position sensor does (assuming I understood properly) is at 70% throttle it tells the PCM it is at 100% throttle. Then if you press the gas further it gets richer and richer. So unless your car is running lean it doesn't do anything but hurt your performance.

I wouldn't recommend buying a GP air intake for the same reasons will said. Custom make one for your Bonneville. Everything else should work fine. The MSD coils are unnecessary though. Zooomer (the fastest GTP with an M90, 2nd fastest overall) still runs stock ignition coils, because he says they give plenty of voltage, and the other coils just basically look good and that is all. $150 for something that is unneccesary is stupid to me. I wouldn't waste the money.

I figured the 149.99 was for three coils, therfore only a few cents off PPF'* price for three coils.

I have the 9" cone and adapter kit in question. It will fit, unless you have the self leveling suspension, because the air compressor gets in the way and the hood won't close. So I bought a 45 degree PVC bend from Lowes, used PVC cement to bond it to the adapter after I found the correct angle to put the filter directly behind the headlight. Works wonderfully.
